*Trainee Radical Data Blitz Description:  Trainees should prepare 1 slide, with a few key figures and no animations, to discuss their research in 3 minutes. The “Radical Data Blitz” will end with 2-3 minutes of questions for the speakers. Cap of 10 speakers in each session. This is a great way for trainees to practice an “Elevator Pitch” and to share research concisely.
